, on michelle obama and then he stood again -- >> well, i'm a fan of standing, i mean, i think it's polite and i think there were more things that republicans could have stood up for. i think that the one place where i wish republicans wouldn't cede the ground to obama is, we should be standing for comprehensive immigration reform. the rubio plan is comprehensive in nature. we've as a party, the conservative platform is that we believe in doing all the pieces together. so, we should have stood to that. >> i think and you're right, this san example of two america. when he said the fix it first program, he described, here's what i want to do and i think the republican response to that is, it's wreck it ralph. their whole idea of his presidency is wreck it ralph, he's wrecking the country. we are seeing 48% of the country on each side of this and this speech and marco rubio's speech are going to respect that. >> martha raddatz, the president did announce the drawdown of troops from afghanistan, mentioned north korea as well. i was strike by his focus on that threat that we've heard so much about fr
